As I replied in your other post, if the radio has the buttons the dealer should have activated. At least that's how it seems to me.

just because you have the button doesn't mean you have uconnect just about all the radio's have that button but you can go to your daler and get the uconnect module and have it installed. mine is a
REN radio i have the buttons but no uconnect either

I have an Iphone 3GS ans when I connect and use the phone via U connect all is OK. But if i try to connect and send music from the iphone to the stereo it does not work well and just plays the music in fast forward. Like Chipmunk speed.

If I plug in via the IPOD connection in the glove compartment then nothing seems to work right. So I bought an 12v USB adapter and use that to charge the phone and use the U connect to talk over the system.

Oh I think mine is the RBZ model

My sales lady set everything up for me and programed it.. The sales staff is suppose to know how to do all that and help you with any questions.

It may be that you dont acutally have the system installed. My wife's 2011 jeep has the button but it doesnt work. I asked the dealer and he said it was a 300.00 option and that all vehicles are not ordeded with it. That sucks because I love mine and it works great.

Yup, my radio had the u connect controls as well, but the module was never installed, had to order that in and have the dealer install it (what a shmozzle that was, went from "we'll have it in 4 or 5 days" to almost 4 months.)
Handy thing when they work though, that's for sure !

Yes, that's one of the things that ticked me off. When I asked for the radio, I thought all that came with it. The brochures they give you make it look like it's all there. The salesman even told me when the air bags go off it automatically calls 911. With no phone, I don't see how it's going to do that. The sales experience was the worst part of the deal. But I agree, if it has the buttons, they should work! Shame on Dodge!

You needed to order the Uconnect as a seperate option, as LBZ HEMI mentioned, all RES radios have the button.
